Not Available.
Condition: Brand new, USA Warranty

Smart Panorama

Capture breathtaking 360-degree panoramic views and vistas just as you remember them, all in one frame and at the touch of a button, by simply panning the camera across the scene. No computer necessary!

Backlight HDR

Shooting into backlight typically results in washed out, overly bright images. Backlight HDR Adjustment takes a collage of images at various exposure levels and blends them into one, perfectly exposed image.

Dual Image Stabilization

Dual Image Stabilization combines Sensor-Shift Image Stabilization with high ISO sensitivity and fast shutter speeds to capture crisp, clear images in any situation.

Enhanced iAuto

Automatically identifies the scene you're shooting - up to 30 different scene including Portrait, Landscape, Night + Portrait, Macro or Sports - and adjusts the settings for ideal results.

Beauty Mode with Make Up Mode

Look like a star! Let the camera soften shadows and smooth wrinkles and blemishes on your subject's face with Beauty Mode. Or, digitally apply enhancements to your portraits like eye shadow, whitening teeth and lifting cheek bones with Beauty Make-Up mode.

4 out of 5 stars   Very happy with my purchase
By TigerJ (Bath, New York) May 12, 2013
Review submitted for Olympus SP-720UZ 14MP 26x Opt Zoom 3-Inch LCD Digital Camera - Black (OMSP720UZK)
Pros: Big Zoom Range, Seems sturdy, Good battery life, Low Light Photography
Cons: Some Shutter Lag
Other Comments: Bought this camera to take on a sight seeing vacation in southwest National Parks. We also used it at a family event, and a theatrical performance. While a few pictures were out of focus, we've taken hundreds of gorgeous pictures in a number of different settings: outdoor scenary, indoor family events, even a musical review in which our daughter performed. Overall, we are very pleased. We've hardly used the flash at all. A couple negatives should be noted. A modest shutter lag makes it difficult to catch our young grandkids in just the right pose. They don't sit still long. Also, the autofocus feature struggles a bit to catch a moving target, especially at higher zoom levels. We were also pleased to get a package deal, including a table top tripod, memory card, and lens cleaning kit while paying no more than what other retailers were charging to the camera alone. It is a nice step up from our older Canon that finally gave up the ghost.
